CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — The Pentagon’s planners are looking into the technologies North Carolina companies and academics are working on as the military weighs what the Defense Department should fund.
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is the site of Tuesday’s gathering discussing the government’s future technology needs.
Researchers and companies get a chance to explain their developments in robots, medicine, new fuels, information management and human potential.
The Pentagon is using the gathering hosted by the North Carolina Military Business Center and others to see how ideas in development compare with the problems it wants addressed with a future product or service.
Members of the Army, Marines and Air Force and other government agencies will discuss their technology needs.
